Virtualization and analytic powered by HANA

Hello HANA experts,

is it possible to have SAP business one analytic powered by HANA on Vmware without need to purchase a dedicated server for HANA analytic?

Thanks 😊

    Hi Man Da,

    There is no possibility to run HANA on a VM that is not running on a certified HANA server. You might be able to make it work but you will not receive support from SAP.

    If you would like to run VM for HANA on a certified HANA server you should visit SAP Business One, version for SAP HANA on VMWare vSphere guide

    It is permitted to run multiple non-production HANA VMs on the same certified HANA server. If one, or more, of those VMs will be used for production you need to get the planned use certified by the Tailored Datacenter Integration team (TDI). See http://scn.sap.com/servlet/JiveServlet/download/60312-3-371595/SAP%20HANA%20Guidelines%20for%20running%20virtualized.pdf section 4.5.1 for the steps to get TDI certification.

    Best regards,

    Duncan

    well, i guess it is possible, there is a potential big problem, because HANA is in-memory database and SAP put a lot of effort to optimize it with certain OS.

    If you use VMWare to host the guest OS and then basically u are avoiding their support if something happens.
